16 of Our Coziest Dinners to Roast, Bake, or Simmer Tonight

February 19, 2018

While the temperature continues to yo-yo between 25 and 65 degrees here in New York, I still find myself pulled to decidedly wintry dishes. I’m not ready to give up slow-roasted squash, pork chops smothered in gravy, or cheesy pasta bakes. I need the comfort of simmering pots of gumbo and bubbling cassoulet. So what if I’m wearing a T-shirt in the middle of February? Here, I’ve gathered the coziest dishes I’m itching to roast, bake, and simmer. My oven doesn’t have to know it’s warm outside.

The Staub 3.5 quart glass top braiser is AWESOME! If it's back ordered like mine was, it's worth the wait especially at this price. I have a full 20 piece set of Marvael copper cookware and some Dansk enamel roasters and their Piealla pan, plus some assorted other pans, but this has become my new 'go to' week day all around pan. I use it to braise which the glass top is really handy for but also to stew and without the lid to saute, where the sloped sides and deep capacity are excellent. Did a wild mushroom marsala sauce and fresh pasta dish in it last night for 4 and it was fantastic. Lastly, It's a dream to clean and looks great as a server too!
